"Lifting of deposit withdrawal moratorium on 18 March could open flood gates and will require a calibrated approach along with active support/signaling from the RBI/govt/investor banks. The reconstituted bank board too may need more turnaround experts and eminent bankers," according to a report by Emkay Global Financial Services.
As per a research report by JM Financial Institutional Securities, "Over the weekend, GoI declared the final restructuring plan for Yes Bank, which also declared its Q3 FY20 financial results. The restructuring scheme for the bank came into effect on March 13, 2020 and the moratorium on the bank will be lifted at 6 pm on 18 March. Yes Bank issued 10 billion equity shares to 8 financial entities."

Weak global trends and persistent foreign fund outflows coupled with rising crude prices led to domestic markets snapping their three-day positive streak. However, they bounced back on the back of gains in oil & gas, metal, and auto sectors.
